These are a few of the changes in our 1997 Endeavor. At some point the carpet will be replaced with oak flooring to match the existing oak in the kitchen/dinette. Our goal has been to replace as much fabric as possible with materials that don't collect dust and are easy to clean. The sofa and chairs are now leatherette. All valances are wood.

My recommendation is for a water resistant laminate floor. That is what was used in our coach and is now over ten years of full-timing and still looks great. (Our coach is a 24 year old Hawkins) . I will post some pics asap

flooring

after ripping out all the carpet to fix the step at first i wanted hardwood
floors. but our starfire motorhome has lots of angles and curved walls and cabints plus has a 3'' step up in to kit. area even had a flooring installer
tell me he would not do it. we found a peel and stick 4''x 48'' oak flooring
at home depot $1 each with lifetime warenty same color as oak trim in motorhome. was told to use a flooring primmer first been down 1 year and all is good with all the curves and angles it took over a week to do plus
framed it in around the steps and floor check out the front edge in picture

Theberys, That laminate flooring looks way better than your old wood did.
how much that run? and since it snaps together...did you have to be carefully where you made your cuts at?

and kustom...its hard to tell from my angle..but it looks like you already have a nice looking hardwood floor on it??? and your putting sticky tile over it? maybe a better picture if you got one? if you already got a nice floor, you could wax and polish it huh? kustom, so we dont kill the thread.haha you should send me a pm.

The total job was about $750 bought at Home Depot it was the DuPont brand with the padding already installed on the panels. I did a layout of the panels on the floor before starting the install and any rearranging needed was done then, see the pictures link for what I did in that phase. I was lucky because my slide has the kitchen in it and the flooring just slid in under the slide. I assembled the driverís side of the living room and slid that first row in as a unit, after that it was just like Lego Blacks until I got to the bathroom, and under that door I used a piece of transition molding which really helped with the cutting of the small pieces in the toilet room.

hi lazy507 what you see in the picture is the peel & stick its a hign end
stuff with a lifetime warenty it looks good its thick and is sold in 4'' strips.
like reel wood .first row i did full strips 4'' wide x 36'' long then second row
started with a 16'' long piece i cut. at the step up i ran a piece side to side first then buted the pieces up to it to make a transition. wife loves it
it also has a non slip grain to it very importent in a moving motorhome.
as i said it $1 a strip so no loss guy told us if we had any left to just return it same price each or by the box john before and after in dinning area. still need to stain the wood by step and we are recovering the dinning chairs john

John I can see at least one picture, not sure how many you tried uploading? Are you using a hosting sight light "photobucket.com"? If not, it's free to host your pictures there and a LOT easier to share them in a thread. Something to consider anyway. Floor looks great, btw!

Cute little table..and i use photobucket to upload pics on here too..lot easier. and ill show you everything when it dries, had to paint the inside of the rv twice, first time i put the paint on the walls, i was thinking to myself this dont look like what color i picked out..after 24 hours of drying it still diddnt look right, so i took it back had them darken it a bit, and painted everything inside again. soon as it dries, ill post some pics.

oh ya and i took all my hardware,(handles,hinges.etc.) and scrape the old gold paint off, and took some chrome paint and some glitter sparkly stuff for hair, and sprayed them both on everything, it all sparkles and shines, and the pictures dont really show how much, but thought it was neat,
